    A Glaxo Drug Turned Him Into A ‘Gay Sex Addict’

    A 51-year-old father of two children plans to file a lawsuit in a French court tomorrow because the GlaxoSmithKline drug he took to treat his Parkinson’s disease caused him to develop impulse control disorders. Specifically, he became hooked on gay sex and gambling. The med in question is Requip, which is known to cause compulsive behaviors.

    But lawyers for Didier Jambart tell Agence France Presse that he began taken Requip in 2003 and stopped two years later, but that an appropriate warning did not appear on the package insert until 2006. By then, he had attempted suicide three times, allegedly became addicted to Internet gambling, lost his family savings, and stole to feed his habit. He also exposed himself on the Internet and took to cross-dressing. And finally, at least one sexual encounter ended in rape. There was no mention of his sexual habits previously, though.

    By the time Jambert gave up Requip, his lawyers says he had been demoted in his defense ministry job - his responsibilities were not mentioned - and he suffered from psychological trauma due to his addictions. What does he want? about $610,000 in damages from Glaxo, which he accuses of selling a “defective” drug, and from his neurologist for having failed to properly inform him about the drug. Glaxo declined to comment.

    The claim that Requip causing homosexuality aside from bogus, infers that homosexuality is a "bad thing" & that homosexuals are "sex addicts." I don't doubt that the drug may result in loss of inhibition, bringing to the forefront that which is repressed. No drug "causes homosexuality" as geneticists have shown that whatever ones sexual preference is genetically hardwired. Studies among identical twins repeatedly show this as scientific proof. This info is easily available via internet.
